Drue Pearce Quoted in AP's "What's next for Pipeline after Colonial hack"

Drue Pearce, former deputy director of the Pipeline Hazardous Materials Safety Administration and now Holland & Hart Director of Government Affairs, was quoted in an Associated Press May 14 article, “EXPLAINER: What’s next for pipelines after Colonial hack.” The article discusses the recent ransomware attack on Colonial Pipeline, and the renewed calls for both improving cyberattack defenses and increased regulation. “When proposals are made on the state or federal level to combat cybersecurity threats, it’s important to remember that one size does not fit all,” said Drue Pearce. “What fits the bigger players doesn’t necessarily work for smaller ones, so it’s difficult to write policies that work for everyone,” she said.
